I'm so sad to hear of Edith's passing. She was always so kind and sweet. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Grateful for Edith and Jack and the life they chose to lead—for others and their community. They leave a wonderful legacy for the child of Savanah. Blessed to have walked a little of life’s path with them.

Edith was one of the most loving, genuine, caring people I had ever worked with. She never met a stranger. Was alway ready to help any of the Employees or students that came into our office. She sewed many dresses and little pants to send to the mission field. Oh how she loved her husband Jack and her family. It radiated ever time She spoke of them. May God be with her family each and everyone of them, comfort and bless them with His Grace!

- Dalton & Lillian Tisdale, Savannah, Ga

Edith was a dear friend and great co-worker. Greeted everyone that came in with that smile and friendly voice. The good things she did with Jack and on her own are beyond counting. She is missed but with Jack now. God's comfort to the family, you know how much she loved you.
